Big sinkhole swallows beach in Queensland

Second hole in three months creates treacherous swimming
A second sinkhole in the space of three months has suddenly opened up on the coast of Queensland, Australia. No one was caught up in the incident, but Surf Life Saving Queensland is urging swimmers to keep away from the hole, warning of strong currents and unstable sand.
The latest sinkhole, about 100 metres wide, appeared on unpatrolled Jumpinpin beach on North Stradbroke Island, off south-east Queensland.
A spokeswoman said the sinkhole was quite a distance from any patrolled areas. “There are really strong currents in the water and the sand is quite unstable,” she said.
In September, another hole further north at Inskip Point swallowed tents, a caravan and a car trailer, in an event described as a “near-shore landslide event” rather than a real sinkhole.
